Best Action/Adventure of E3.

Promise that this will be the last post about this for a while, but this one is quite significant. The awards from E3 were announced last night, and Assassin's Creed was nominated for 4 of them, including Best of Show, Most Original Game, Best Console Game and Best Action/Adventure.

We didn't get best of show, that went to the Nintendo Wiiiiiiiii. Which is fair enough, as it had people lining up for over 3 hours to play it, but we did win Best Action/Adventure.

Upon looking back through the past winners of this catagory I noticed that Ubisoft Montreal seems to dominate this catagory, congrats to everyone, and let's hope that this is the start of big things.

1998 : Grim Fandango (LucasArts)
1999: Oni (Bungie)
2000: Escape from Monkey Island (LucasArts Entertainment for PC)
2001: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (Konami for PS2)
2002: Splinter Cell (UbiSoft Montreal)
2003: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (UbiSoft Montreal)
2004: Splinter Cell 3 (UbiSoft Montreal)

2005: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Nintendo for GameCube)
2006: Assassin's Creed (Ubisoft Montreal / UbiSoft for PS3)
